Summary: Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology, Third Edition provides a thorough overview of the fundamentals of botany. The topics and chapters are organized in a sequence that is easy to follow, beginning with the most familiar -- structure -- and proceeding to the less familiar -- metabolism -- then finishing with those topics that are probably the least familiar to most beginning students -- genetics, evolution, the diversity of organisms, and ecology.

...show more> Throughout the text, three key principles are stressed:

  • evolution by natural selection
  • analysis of botanical phenomenon
  • the diversity of structures and metabolisms
In addition, the author believes that a knowledge of evolution by natural selection is essential for understanding biological structures and processes and therefore places emphasis on Evolution by Natural Selection.
  • Analysis of Botanical Phenomenon and Diversity. Emphasizing natural selection throughout the book allows the author to incorporate analysis of botanical phenomenon and diversity into every subject. This approach of analyzing diversity of structures and metabolisms on the basis of evolution by natural selection encourages students to participate in biological inquiry.
  • BotanyLinks is an extensive botany web site developed specifically for this textbook by Jones and Bartlett Publishers and James Mauseth. Here students will find a variety of exercises, links to relevant web sites, a directory of botany and botany-related organizations, and an enhanced version of the full glossary from the text. Coming Soon!
  • Emphasis on Evolution by Natural Selection. Believing that a knowledge of evolution by natural selection is essential for understanding biological structures and processes, the author works throughout the text to convey how powerful a concept natural selection is. Beginning with Chapter 1, selective advantage and fitness are referred to or discussed in every chapter and on almost every page. Natural selection is covered in detail in Chapter 17 after students have become rather sophisticated in their knowledge of plants and botanical phenomena.
  • Logical progression. The topics and chapters are organized in a sequence that is easy to follow, beginning with the most familiar -- structure -- and proceeding to the less familiar -- metabolism -- then finishing with those topics that are probably the least familiar to most beginning students -- genetics, evolution, the diversity of organisms, and ecology.
